Mental Health: Statements (Resumed) (21 Nov 2019)

David Cullinane: I am sharing time with Deputy Ellis. I welcome the opportunity to have this debate. A number of us tabled a Topical Issue matter on the Waterford psychiatric unit some weeks ago. The Minister of State was not in a position to be here, which was unfortunate because this was not just a scandal in Waterford or the south east. It was seen as a national scandal to have patients being treated...

Dessie Ellis: While some progress is being made with regard to mental health services, it is a slow process and not something for which the Government should take credit.

Supporting Children out of Emergency Accommodation and into Homes: Statements (21 Nov 2019)

Damien English: Let us be clear on that. I get a sense from some of Fianna Fáil Deputies that they believe this is an attack on the LDA.

James Browne: There are no staff to care for children who suffer from disabilities such as autism or Down's syndrome and who also suffer from a mental health illness in three health areas, CHO 1, CHO 3 and CHO 6.

Mental Health: Statements (Resumed) (21 Nov 2019)

Mary Butler: As the Minister is well aware, the department of psychiatry at University Hospital Waterford, UHW, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the past month. As a result, confidence in the unit by patients, staff and the general public is at a low ebb. The catchment area for UHW covers Waterford and Wexford. I was appalled when I read the report from the Mental Health Commission...
